Oh I forgot. That's WW Version

Need to restart your phone from Fastboot and you need adb on your computer.
Here's the code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

If you unlock the bootloader before the nougat. You can Install Nougat but it will autoshutdown the unit because the Boot.img and Recovery.img is still in Marsmallow OS.

meaning those who had unlocked bootloader can't update to Nougat then?

Hi dude, i have installed the Nougat version this morning and my phone is turning off after 10sec after power on. I have never unlocked the bootloader before. I have tried your above solution but still having the same issue. Can you pls help me ?

Note : Problem solved ; i've downloaded and installed again the official Nougat from Asus web site and it works. Later I have unlocked bootloader and rooted my phone but now is got the dm-verity warning again but this time in orange but it can boot and work properly. I'm looking for a way to get rid of the dm-verity warning at all.

You can't remove that warning. Sorry

Hi everyone!
I have a Zenfone 3 operator branded (TIM).
I am still on Marshmallow with Locked Bootloader.
Can I use these ADB commands to overwrite my actual Stock Recovery and gain the WW Nougat Recovery?
Then I would enter the recovery to install the same WW Nougat ASUS ROM version.
In this way would I obtain to debrand my phone and get Nougat in one shot?
Can this be done with Locked Bootloader?
Thank You!

It works!

I just want to confirm to those who are wondering that installing the recovery and boot images along with the firmware from the Asus website works fine. Just make sure that you get the firmware that has the same version with the recovery+boot that the OP uploaded which is 14.2015.1701.8.

Phone hasn't shut down or rebooted on its own so there shouldn't be any worries as long as you do all the steps right. :)

Edit: I did this on a ZE520KL btw.
